“Ocean Elements - simply the best bunch of guys n girls”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 26, 2013

Hotel was a little on the tired side, bathrooms were not great BUT always cleaned daily and the staff in the hotel were very friendly. There was plenty of choice for breakfast. Great snack meals for lunch after sailing, the evening events were great fun and a real must so you get to meet fellow guests. The real season anyone goes here is of course to sail - I can't put into words the amazing time we had - every member of the Ocean Elements Team were FANTASTIC. The help and support at every level was FAB - we started on the basic course and were encouraged every step of the way by Josh & Laura. We also went on a couple of bike rides with Alex who is like a bouncing exploding nutter on his bike - his zest for life and his job rubs off on everyone you just can't help wanting to explore on at least one of his trips - beware he is like that battery that lasts 4 times more! My son and I came away happy and confident that we are now able to handle the basics of sailing, the basics of all the other watersports and above all we came away with new friends - yes we are shattered but we would go back tomorrow if given a chance - if only to soak up some of the amazing atmosphere around the Ocean Elements Team - Thank you to Steve and EVERYONE you made our holiday! Simon & Harry Weston

Room Tip: All rooms are clean, you are there for the water sports!

We stayed at delfini with ocean elements great location friendly staff .
Rooms a nice size and cleaned daily to a high standard

Would definitely go back:-)

The resort in nidri has lots of nice bars and restaurants and no tacky British bars yet .

The waterfalls just outside nidri are well worth a visit there's a nice open air bar there and they serve great mohitos :-)

We had an amazing week at hotel delfini with ocean elements. The hotel is a family run hotel they are very friendly and offer an excellent service. The rooms were pleasant and they were extremely clean. The hotel is a 5min walk from the town were there is plenty of boat trips and excursions to choose from. There was plenty of choice when going out for an evening meal by the harbour and the main strip. I would strongly recommend staying in the hotel defini it's great for family's and couples.

Just got back from an amazing week with Ocean Elements and at the delfini hotel in Nidri. It turned out to be an awesome vacation, with something for all! You can not fault the hotel, especially the family who run it, who are so helpful, friendly and will do anything to make your stay a great one!

The staff at Ocean Elements are such a laugh, as well as not stoping at anything to make you comfortable on the water, both at lesson times and even any time after that! They are patient, good coaches and they have fun whilst doing it! Especially would like to thank Josh, Adam and Laura for so much patience with my 500 capsizes and a fantastic BBQ night! Although the biggest cred for that has to go to Mark- who got his legs waxed for Sail for Cancer! =)

REALLY ACE HOLIDAY! No need to go anywhere else and would rather not have left at all!

THANKS SO MUCH! /Jess and Rich

Room Tip: Room 27 was great! 28 and 29 have even better ocean views!

This was the first time in Greece for myself, husband, 18 and 15 year old son and daughter and it certainly won't be our last. We stayed at the Hotel Delfini on a last minute Ocean Elements beach holiday. Turns out it was a perfect choice for us and one of our most enjoyable holidays as my husband and children were kept occupied with unlimited watersports and I could lie on the beach or go shopping in Nidri - something for everyone. (For anyone thinking of going on an activity holiday I can't praise Ocean Elements enough for their professional approach, enthusiasm and great kit)

I can only echo what has been said previously about the Hotel Delfini - if you are looking for a friendly hotel with a laid back atmosphere, fantastic location and stunning views then look no further. This small hotel is located right on the shingle beach and the views from the terrace across to the islands are stunning. A perfect spot for breakfast and lunch and we always ended our evenings sitting under the canopy of trees, listening to the gentle lap of the waves, enjoying a carafe or two of the delicious house wine. Our bedrooms were kept spotlessly clean and, although basic, contained everything we needed, including a fridge and AC. Our balconies caught the late afternoon sun where we enjoyed a sundowner every evening and took in the amazing views before heading out to eat at one of the many harbour front restaurants.

There is a real family feel at the Delfini, which is missing in larger hotel chains, and the friendly owners are around from breakfast until the last guest leaves the bar at night. Guests are made to feel very welcome. The cost of food and drink at the hotel was good value and we ate lunch on the terrace every day. We had good fun at the Greek night at the hotel and would definitely recommend it for authentic Greek food and dancing. The mix of guests at the Delfini is good and despite the occasional language barrier, there are many conversations and laughs to be had.

Nidri came as a very pleasant surprise, with a great selection of shops, bakeries and some wonderful restaurants along the harbour front. The area feels very safe and in the evening the main street becomes a pedestrian zone (sort of!) with locals and holidaymakers soaking up the atmosphere, booking boat trips and sampling snacks from the many frozen yoghurt and crepe sellers.

I met holidaymakers who return to Nidri year after year and I can now see why. If you are expecting party central this is not the place for you but if you are looking for sunshine, a fabulous location and lovely people you will have a fantastic time here. Sports enthusiasts will be well catered for by knowledgeable Ocean Elements staff who will provide a great watersports and mountain biking experience then you can return to the laid back atmosphere of the hotel to relax and unwind. We have been bitten by the bug and are already planning our return to Nidri and the friendly atmosphere of the Hotel Delfini.

Just arrived back after spending a week at the Delfini with my fiancée, his son [12] my son and his friend [both 23] my twin boys [8] and my parents [75] my parents have been coming to the Delfini for 25 years and this is my sixth year. I couldn't understand why my parents kept returning to the same hotel but within ten minutes of arriving I knew why. Set right on the beach the setting is incredible and amazing views. The hotel staff are friendly and couldn't be more helpful. Rooms are basic but comfortable and the food is good. If you didn't want to eat at the hotel Nidri is only a short walk with lots of fantastic places to eat and bars which are open until the early hours. This year we went with Ocean Elements what can I say but fantastic, there was something for everyone. They had a kids club which had the twins entertained all day windsurfing, sailing, kayaking, snorkeling, dinghy and power boats it was never ending they loved it the reps were brilliant. It all has to be seen to be believed.

I could roll out of bed and be in the ocean it's that close! The rooms are basic but has everything you need. Make sure you get AC included in your room price. The staff are really nice and if you are there with ocean elements their staff are also absolutely brilliant! Great holiday, great resort, great staff, all round just great!!

Room Tip: Get AC included in your room price
